We are looking for an exchange in UK during October.

Comfortable large terraced house in PLYMOUTH, Great Britain with plenty of character. We have found an exchange for this summer.

Dear friends,
We are a family of four: Alasdair, 73 who is a retired librarian; Sally,70, who used to work as a teaching assistant in one of Plymouth's secondary schools; Iain, 40, who lives near us here in Plymouth with his partner and our little grandsons and will not be joining us on holiday; James, 35, living and working in France as a translator in Paris.  So it will just be Sally and Alasdair who will come on holiday, unless other members of the family care to join us!
We live fairly centrally in a large terraced house which was built in 1833 and has lots of period features which we have enhanced and replaced. Downstairs, there is a living room with a new wood floor, working fireplace, TV with CD player, music system and record deck. Also comfortable sofas and lots of plants. Double doors (usually kept closed) lead to the dining room which has an upright piano and several guitars ( Alasdair is the musician while I sing.). At the end of the hall is a new downstairs toilet and then a breakfast room which overlooks the lower courtyard with its wall fountain. Then the kitchen, with a range cooker and all the usual appliances except for a clothes drier. We have a small but sunny courtyard garden with a table and chairs, and a portable barbecue. On the first floor is the master bedroom which has a new wood floor, double bed and period features, the second bedroom with double bed, another bedroom with a single bed, bathroom with bath and shower, and another separate loo. On the top floor is the office with PC and Internet access, and another large room, recently redecorated, with a sofa bed in it. We have another single airbed.

There are shops a few minutes away in Stoke Village ( ATM, supermarket etc) and several pubs, cafés and restaurants.

It is easy to get to the town centre - we both often walk - which has a new shopping mall, and interesting old buildings in the Barbican, which is also the fishing port. Plymouth is surrounded by beautiful countryside and loads of beaches, and is set between Cornwall and Devon. Eden Project is only an hour away by car. This is a very attractive and interesting part of England, and you can reach London by train in about 3 hours.
We think that you would enjoy this part of the country. The weather is often better here and milder than further north!

Our house is not suitable for babies or children under 5.

Best wishes,
Alasdair and Sally MacNaughtan

Carte de situation géographique et informations complémentaires

Aéroport le plus proche: Exeter - One hour away from Plymouth.

We live in an area known as Stoke Village which is an inner city suburb. Stoke is nice because it has a heart - shops etc a short walk away from our house. It is possible to walk into Plymouth city centre (about 30 minutes) and there is a regular bus service. We don't have a garage because our house is in a terrace, but we park our car in the street outside our house or nearby. At the end of our road is Devonport Park which is very pretty, and where I work every Monday morning (when we are not away!) as a volunteer gardener.
